New Jewelry by Jorge Castañón at Velvet da Vinci

 

“I wanted to talk about abundance, but suddenly knew that I was actually talking about what is not there, the void, and I found myself again making bowls, hollows filled with nothing or almost nothing. Since then, I kept on looking for hidden places, old hiding places, crevices, containers of many things and of nothing at the same time, inhabited by silent presences. Now I invent them, construct them, give them voice. I rescue objects and materials that were on the way to oblivion and return to communicate a minimal story.

Quise hablar de la abundancia, y de pronto supe que en realidad estaba hablando de lo que no hay, del vacío, y volví a encontrarme haciendo cuencos , oquedades llenas de nada o de casi nada. Desde entonces, seguí buscando lugares ocultos, viejos escondites, hendiduras, contenedores de muchas cosas y de nada a la vez, habitados por presencias mudas. Ahora los invento, los construyo, les doy voz. Rescato objetos y materiales que iban camino al olvido y vuelven para comunicar una historia mínima.”
